Odd verification email for VC33/34 with no verifier - testing?

I received an email verification notice for records from East and West Gloucestershire 10Apr2019 with no verifier names. If I look at these records via irecord 'explore my records' they still say 'awaiting review'. If I hover over the record ID link in the email this is one of the urls: http://test.irecord.org.uk_dev/record-details?occurrence_id=9796681 .This is different to the standard urls in verification emails. I have included the text from the email below:

Dear Tracy,

You have the following new notifications..

Verification of your records

Please do not reply to this email – replies go to the iRecord email account and will not be seen by the verifiers. If you wish to respond to a verifier then please click on the blue "Record ID" link below which will take you to your record on iRecord. You can add your reply in the “Add new comments” box at the foot of that page.

From Record ID Message Record status
iRecord 9796681 The record of Speckled Wood at SO9121 on 10/04/2019 was accepted as correct. Accepted as considered correct
iRecord 9796763 The record of Orange-tip at SO721049 on 10/04/2019 was accepted as correct. Accepted as considered correct

Does anyone know if this is just someone testing the system or has something gone wrong, please?

Please note that I have now received another email with apparent verification for more butterfly records from Gloucestershire which when viewed in explore my records are still awaiting review. I cannot leave a comment for a verifier as there isn’t one!

Many thanks

Tracy

hi Mothy 10

I too have had similar messages.

I posted a forum note on 09/02/2020 on the subject. Again on Saturday 29/02/2020 I posted ,on the General Discussion Forum, yet another forum note saying precisely the same as you the verifier being  show as "brc" or "testing". This received a reply from a fellow recorder saying that he was experiencing the same  mesages. It appears that it is butterfly records that are affected.and

I have vast numbers covering 2001-2019 that I have received verification of over the past week or so.

I have also sent an email to the admin explaining what is going on, but to date had no reply.

I was concerned and sent the message of 9/2/20 because I thought someone may be phishing using our site details.

We can only wait to see what admin comes up with.
